Smart Makeover of 1930’s Austrian Home and a Magical Backyard Escape

A sense of timelessness coupled with natural beauty and ample privacy, the Enchanted Shed is the perfect retreat that is just a few steps away from a traditional and beautiful Austrian home. Part of a sensible and inventive renovation project dubbed The Enchanted Shed & Leopold House and carried out by Franz&Sue, the delightful new avatar of this once forgotten shed showcases how old structures can be carefully altered to meet modern demands. In the shadow of an old Vienna Woods villa and built in the mid-1900s, the shed had little use for its homeowners today. Turning it into an elegant backyard office / retreat and guest space felt like an obvious and smart choice!

Beautifully revamped shed and house in Austria combines old and the new

It is the attic of the old shed that has been transformed into a guest space and tranquil escape while the lower level still serves as a storage area for garden tools. A brass trapdoor leads the way to the top level where a small work desk and chair greet you. You can easily add a bed to this level to transform it into a comfortable guest room. Large glass window offers wonderful views of the landscape outside while top-notch insulation keeps out the winter chill. A larch deck acts as the connecting bridge between the new hangout in the yard and the main house, which also underwent a major revamp.
